Megan Clark-Bagnall

Megan likes to make fun/ny projects with people. She makes intergenerational art projects in the public realm, and celebrates the good and excellent in human nature, to create sincerely feel good art. Megan doesn’t make very serious art, but she is very serious about making art that connects people together.

Megan started working professionally as a visual artist and social maker in 2012, when she was appointed artist in residence at Crewe Swimming Pool, working in collaboration with local teenagers. Megan discovered their love for swimming in the pool on Saturday mornings, and shooting pool at the youth club on Saturday evenings… and so ‘Pool in the Pool’ was born. The two mayors of Crewe played pool, whilst Megan directed the teenagers (wearing pool ball helmets) to act out the game of table top pool, shot by shot, inside Crewe swimming pool. Later shown at The Bluecoat, Liverpool & Bristol’s Diving School gallery, this project shaped Megan’s practice.

Megan’s artistic interventions are often identified by the Barratt’s Fruit Salad chew colours; pink and yellow.


Virtual Art

As a freelance asthmatic artist in lockdown, I really needed escapism and to continue working – so these silly projects were founded on the honest need for love, self care & silliness for myself, and a notion that others might need this too.

Live Art

My practice is about LIVE shared experience, being in the moment, and celebrating togetherness.
